25. You're welcome!
I must admit I am impressed with his weight loss. But I wouldn't vote for Kirstie Alley or Valerie Bertinelli, either, and I admire their weight loss, too.

I just think huckabee is a stealth bomber. If you like those big hand-raising, swaying, hyperventilating revival meetings then prepare for the scent of them at EVERY presidential appearance, speech, and press conference. The so-called Office of Faith-Based Initiatives will be a frickin' cabinet-level position. We'll be turned into a theocracy, only our ayatollas and mullas will be smiling and clean-shaven and speak gently and kindly and play rock music to throw bones to the masses while, in the back rooms, they'll be finishing off what's left of the Constitution from the shards and splinters that remain after the bush era. It'll be "WHAT separation of Church and state? I don't know WHAT you're talking about! It's NEVER been that way! Praise the Lord!"

Scares (pardon the pun) the bejeezuss out of me. And I'm a lifelong Catholic. huckabee is a DANGEROUS man.

Hell, even my husband's disgusted and suspicious, and he's a more devout, practicing Christian than I am. He still goes to a non-denominational service every Sunday. And he got pissed off while watching the debate the other night. When huckabee took that question (Do You Believe This BOOK????!?!?!?!?!?!?!) and stated that the only true Christian was Jesus Christ, my guy went ballistic. "Jesus WASN'T a Christian!!! He was a Jewish man!!!! Christians didn't even EXIST when Jesus walked the earth!!!" And it's true. To say that Jesus Christ was a Christian means, I guess, that Jesus was busy following Himself all day. To be a Christian means to be a follower of Christ. And for heaven's sakes, huckabee of all people should know the difference and not make that mistake, especially one given such high marks for eloquence when talking about religion. He sells himself in his campaign commercials as being a "Christian leader," and then denies he's pandering that way when asked about it (I think it was Chris Matthews who did). He never hesitates to wear his minister's credentials like a neon-lit sandwich board all over the map. He's a real whore that way! Okay, mike - WE GET IT. WE KNOW. WE KNOW YOU CAME STRAIGHT OUTTA DIVINITY SCHOOL. ENOUGH already! Last I looked, I was voting for PRESIDENT, not Pope or Archbishop.
